In 2018, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi announced the launch of a government initiative to train 10,000 young Egyptians to become gaming and app developers within the next three years as well as support the establishment of 100 companies specialised in these sectors across Egypt and Africa.

AGDA aims to tackle the goal head on with the conference outlining two primary objectives:

  • Form a strategic platform for government entities from across the continent to engage with the industry.
  • Provide an all encompassing experience for the developer to understand the potential of this exciting sector.

With the support and partnership of the Information Technology Industry Development Agency ‘ITIDA’ and the Ministry of Communications & Information Technology, the conference and exhibition aims to be the biggest B2B platform for budding developers, publishers, technology providers, telecom operators, payment providers, localisation experts, content creators, designers and policy makers from all over Africa to engage and discuss the future of the industry.

AGDA will take place at the Cairo international exhibition center from October 31 to November 2.
